The Secret Weapon Of Weight Loss Success Is Accountability

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ January 19, 2008

Weight loss success is virtually impossible to accomplish without the help of a solid circle of accountability surrounding you, supporting you, and cheering you on as you travel down what is arguably the hardest thing you will ever do in your entire life. It astonishes me whenever I hear people who try to begin a low-carb lifestyle change without at least securing for themselves an individual or a group of people who will provide the necessary checks and balances to keep them honest about their progress.

Christine and I address this extremely important topic head-on in Episode 23 of “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb On YouTube.” This is one of those issues that so many people take too lightly in their weight and health management program which may explain why the rate of attrition among those who are able to lose weight and keep it off long-term is so obscenely high. Accountability is paramount whenever you are striving towards a goal and much more so when that goal is losing weight and regaining your health.

Find out how you can be held accountable in your diet in today’s video:

Most people who know about my low-carb weight loss success know that my wife Christine was a big part of that which is why I often tell people that they need to find their own “Christine” as they go down this road to a better life. You also should try to weigh yourself often so you know where you stand with your weight before it gets out of control.

Of course, blogging about your weight loss is an incredible accountability partner as so many people have discovered. In fact, I’m aware of over 100+ blogs that have been created by people who took up my challenge to create one to be more accountable and responsible in their commitment to livin’ la vida low-carb.

My fellow low-carb blogger and friend Kent Altena did his own YouTube video on this subject of accountability because he knows his 200+ pound weight loss would not have been possible with it. This should lead you to ask a question I posed at my podcast show not that long ago: who holds you accountable on your diet? It’s the million dollar question that deserves an answer. The last thing you want to do is try to diet in secret. That’s the fastest way to falling flat on your face!
